Pousada Naturalia

Rio & the Coast

Rating: Mid-range    

Pousada Naturalia overview

Sandwiched between the sea and the Atlantic Rainforest, this peaceful pousada is a wonderful retreat on stunning Ilha Grande.

Located on the edge of Abrao Village, it is well away from any noise of the village at the quiet end of the beach, providing a comfortable beach escape amid spectacular scenery just two hours from Rio. At the same time the village is within walking distance, convenient for restaurants, bars and other activities.

Guests can take boat trips to local islands, villages and beaches and explore the lush Atlantic rainforest behind the pousada but you'll find it hard to leave your room to explore this beautiful island, as each room has its own hammock and balcony with glorious sea views.

All pillars in the guesthouse are made from sustainable eucalyptus wood, rooms have an optimization system to avoid wasting energy and every stone found in the original terrain was preserved and included in the pousada.


Open:  Pousada Naturalia is open all year.

Location:  Pousada Naturalia is set in 1000 square metres of gardens between the ocean and the rainforest, a 10-minute walk from Abraao on Ilha Grande.  

Rooms:  All 12 suites are air conditioned, have ceiling fans, minibars, safes, en-suite bathrooms and private balconies with hammocks. 4 are doubles, 4 triples and the remaining 4 can accommodate up to 4 people. There are no TVs in the rooms. Rooms are situated in 2 separate blocks.

Activities:  Relaxing on the many beaches of the island, swimming, snorkelling, diving, sunbathing, watersports, boat trips, walking in the rainforest, visiting Abraao town. Hotel staff can arrange boat taxis to deserted beaches and give guests maps of walking trails. Spend time enjoying ocean views from the hammock on your private balcony.  

Facilities: There is an open-sided dining area where breakfast is served. The pousada is set in lush gardens. Lunch and dinner are not provided though drinks can be bought here and there is a choice of restaurants in Abraao, just a few minutes’ walk away.

Mr Tim Jones

"Beautiful grounds and location. Good breakfast. Rooms possibly a bit small and breakfast area not so good when torrential rain - dark and damp. Very helpful owner/manager giving daily advice as to what to do. "

Jennifer Stenhouse
"Loved it - superb view (climb to get there!), lovely atmoshere, excellent breakfast, and very helpful staff who checked each day what your activites were, and gave masses of good advice."
Margaret UK
"Built up hiilside behind beach with verdant foliage and boulders around. Quite steep 3 min walk up paved path but views from room verandah worth it. Many restaurants close by along beach. Friendly staff. Free tea/coffee and cake in afternoon very welcome."
